Make it three wins in a row for the Moose Jaw Warriors, as the team won a hard-fought battle on Tuesday night, 3-1 over their division rivals the Saskatoon Blades. Josh Hoekstra got the game-winner for the Warriors in the second period of last night's game. Ryder Korczak said after the win that it was a tough game to create offence.
"It was difficult, they're a shutdown team and was like a playoff game out there," says Korczak. "There were not a lot of second or third opportunities, but I thought we did really well in getting in front of their goalie."
The win pulls Moose Jaw within one point of the Blades for second place in the east division. The two teams complete the home-and-home series on Wednesday in Saskatoon at 7:00 p.m. Catch all the action on Country 100.
